How To Bend An Image Using Photoshop

How To Bend Image Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a tool filled with features and can do just about anything your creative heart desires. Having so many features means that going through all the options can take time and many options go unused since there are various ways to complete one task using photoshop. One of the more popular ways to modify an image has been to be able to bend it in various ways. Photoshop has a set of tools that allow for curving images in various degrees and shapes.

To bend an image in photoshop you need to look at an option called warp. You can even use the Warp controls to bend segments of your image in one direction while bending other segments in a different direction

Using Photoshop CS5/6

  1. Click "File" at the top of the window and then click "Open."
  2. Browse to the location of the image file that you wish to bend and then double-click the file to open it in Photoshop.
  3. Click "Edit" at the top of the window, click "Transform," and then click "Warp." This will place a box with circles on it around your image. The circles are the handles that will control the warp effect.
  4. Drag the handles to begin bending your image.
  5. Press "Enter" on your keyboard once you have applied the desired effect to your image.

Tip If you do not like the bend effect that you have applied to your image, you can press "Ctrl + Z" on your keyboard to undo the action after it has been applied.
